Abstract

GaAs‐GaAlAs double‐heterostructure lasers were fabricated on semi‐insulating substrates. Laser action based on carrier confinement via the crowding effect has been demonstrated. Laser action takes place in a narrow (10–20 μm) region near the edge of the mesa where the current is injected. The threshold current is low and is comparable to that of stripe‐geometry lasers.
